Detroit is ready to make a major quarterback decision despite spending a high draft pick on one.
On Tuesday, Lions general manager Brad Holmes said that the team has discussed extending Jared Goff's contract.
Holmes discussed Goff's probable extension on 97.1 The Ticket's Stoney & Jansen Show. Goff, 28, has two years left on his contract.
Holmes told Pro Football Talk that he and his agent have spoken. “We’re good.”
While with the Rams, Goff signed a four-year, $134 million extension. Goff's post-2023 salary is uncertain.
The Lions might replace Goff with Hendon Hooker as their quarterback. According to Holmes and the team, they don't want their starting quarterback to leave after the season.
Goff completed 65.1 percent of his throws for 4,438 yards, 29 touchdowns, and seven interceptions last season.
He helped the Lions to 9-8 and the playoffs under offensive coordinator Ben Johnson.
Social media reacted to the Goff extension news. Lions supporters were unkind.
